If I named a dozen bands who had the talent and creativity to be bigger than the Rolling Stones, there's no way to confirm that, either.
The point was that if the authors is persistent and tries to publish it with a publisher then it sooner or later will be published if it was a gem. of course that do not hold for examples that an effort was not made to get it published.
